I’m a bad blogger now. I barely ever pick up my laptop anymore. I had to remind myself to edit the elopement I shot on the 13th- which I love the images so much, and had a great time back at it! But my little man takes up most of my attention.
I went back to work on the 26th of March and it’s been fine! Everyone was very glad to have me back and it felt great being so missed and appreciated. I miss my little man during the day but it makes the weekends THAT MUCH sweeter. Work is going just fine and it’s nice to be able to fly around the clinic without the pregnancy weight making my crotch feel like it’s ripping apart and being a total total bitch. I was seriously such a bitch.
Feeding– Going very well! Still no nipple shield. I pump three times a day while I’m at work so Hawk is still eating my breast milk while my mom watches him. We breastfeed when we are together. He wakes up twice during the night for a feed but it isn’t a bother. He eats, goes back to sleep, then I go back to sleep. I tried formula my first couple of nights back to work and while he DID sleep 6+ hours in one stretch, I hate the smell of formula and find it to be a pain in the ass. Not knocking formula, for me FED IS BEST! but I will just stick with the breast 🙂
Sleeping– Doing well! He goes down for the night anywhere between 8 and 9:15 pm. I usually go to bed at the same time after our routine. Like I said, he wakes once or twice a night and that’s it. He’s a great napper. He gets pissed if he’s not going to bed when he’s ready, haha
Mom, aka ME– Doing very well! I started Weight Watchers last week and even though I don’t know exactly (I weigh myself at work on Thursday) I believe I am a couple pounds down already. I have also started doing bikram yoga – which is a style of yoga I never tried before- and it’s kicking my ass in the best way. I’ve been having back problems and yoga is really helping, and I also got a massage this weekend that helped, as well.
Marriage- Great! In fact hubs and I had an impromtu slow dance session not but an hour ago. ❤
Photography biz– I found a beautiful office that is smaller than my studio was, so it’s affordable. I got the keys the first week of April and haven’t done a thing with it yet. I had my first session of the season with an elopement on the 13th and my wedding season starts next month. I have 5 less weddings than I did last year, but I’m okay with it. I’m still trying to figure out how it will all work with the business, the baby, and my full time job.
Hawk is still a wonderful baby. He is such a happy little guy! He lights up a room. I will never be able to properly convey the love I feel for him. ❤ Here are some photos!
